Liam O'Brien

With particular interest in the construction of individuality and the ambiguities of personal freedom, Liam O’Brien utilises personal experience, intuition and theoretical texts to produce video and performance works that explore the human condition under advanced capitalism. 

Graduating from the Queensland College of Art (Griffith University) with 1st class honours in 2010, O’Brien has spent the last 4 years developing his practice through a number of local and interstate exhibitions. In 2013 O’Brien completed a commission for Artbank’s Performutations video series, undertook a residency at 501 Artspace in Chongqing, China and was named a recipient of the Art & Australia/Credit Suisse Private Banking Contemporary Art Award.

In 2017 O’Brien completed a residency at the International Studio and Curatorial Program, in New York, and a commission titled Early April for RealTime Australia.
